    'MISSING WHITE WOMAN SYNDROME': Don Lemon, Joy Reid criticize Gabby Petito story over race Joy Reid argued that the Petito case an example of "missing white woman syndrome." During Monday night's broadcasting of popular CNN and MSNBC shows, hosts Joy Reid and Don Lemon argued that the case of Gabby Petito, and the subsequent national attention the case has garnered, is evidence of widespread racism in the United States. During The Reidout with Joy Reid, she argued that the Petito case is an example of "missing white woman syndrome," a term reportedly coined by the late PBS host Gwen Ifill....

    Gwen Ifill, the longtime PBS news anchor who had served as a co-host of PBS’s NewsHour and as moderator of “Washington Week,” has died after a battle with cancer, PBS has confirmed. She was 61. “It is with extremely heavy hearts that we must share that our dear friend and beloved colleague Gwen Ifill passed away this afternoon following several months of cancer treatment,” PBS NewsHour said in a statement on Monday. “She was surrounded by loving family and many friends whom we ask that you keep in your thoughts and prayers.” "I am very sad to tell you that...

    Here are more signs Sarah Palin could face an uphill battle with PBS host Gwen Ifill. Professor Sherrilyn Ifill of the University of Maryland Law School, whom Gwen Ifill has lauded as "my brilliant baby cousin," has written that black women are not buying Sarah Palin's "false claims to feminism" and is portrayed as too perfect: "when women who are privileged present as though they have it all together, it's offensive to black women." The Community Times, a suburban Maryland newspaper, found Professor Ifill was ardently opposed to the Alaska governor when they did an e-mail interview: "From the first...

    Gwen Ifill, the host of PBS’s Newhour program, defended herself from criticism after taking heat for sending a tweet that many users interpreted as a shot against Israeli Prime Minister Benjain Netanyahu. Ifill retweeted a message from the State Department’s official pro-Iran deal Twitter account claiming that the recently inked accord would significantly reduce Iran’s ability to produce a nuclear weapon. “Take that, Bibi,” Ifill wrote in a message sent with the State Department’s tweet. Multiple users on Twitter quickly pushed back against Ifill’s message, claiming she was unfairly targeting the Israeli prime minister and revealing a pro-Iran bias. When...

    I’m the ombudsman at PBS and I don’t want to be glib or dash off something on Twitter that I would quickly regret, or that could easily be misunderstood, or could be used to either discredit me and my work or PBS. I had the same policy about pre-social media venues when I was the ombudsman at The Washington Post. So that brings me to the real self-inflicted wound, which was a tweet by PBS NewsHour co-anchor Gwen Ifill on Wednesday—after it became known that President Obama had secured the necessary number of Democratic backers in the Senate to ensure...

    More Self-Inflicted Wounds By Michael GetlerSept. 2, 2015This column is not about me, but I start by acknowledging that I am something of a technological dinosaur. I still read printed newspapers and I don’t have a Twitter account or Facebook page. But the reason I don’t engage in social media is only in part because I’m a little challenged technologically. The real reason is that I’m the ombudsman at PBS and I don’t want to be glib or dash off something on Twitter that I would quickly regret, or that could easily be misunderstood, or could be used to...

    Ted Cruz was interviewed today by the liberal Gwen Ifill from PBS Newshour, and to her credit the interview was not a ‘gotcha’ interview. Cruz did fantastic as he always does, as they discussed a number of issues including Iran, Trump, the Washington Cartel, and some interesting tidbits from Cruz’s life about him being too cocky and burning bridges when he worked for the George W. Bush campaign. You’ll love it. Link to Video

    As this campaign season draws to an end, doubtless many will comment on what was right and what went wrong for each party. Let me beat the crowd by stating whatever the outcomes of the Congressional and state races the notion of Republicans continuing to allow Democratic operatives posing as newsmen and women to act as moderators in candidate debates is one of the most inexplicably stupid blunders of all. And yet each election it is repeated. Let this be the last time. Here are some names and incidents that should be engraved forever on the RNC steps and in...
  • Biden cancels annual summer beach party

    Vice President Joe Biden will not be throwing his annual beach party for journalists this summer, POLITICO has learned. Since 2010, Vice President Biden and Dr. Jill Biden have invited top journalists to their home at the Naval Observatory for a beach bash that has included Super Soaker fights, face painting, and a moon bounce. Past guests have included then-White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, CNN's Wolf Blitzer and Candy Crowley, MSNBC's Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow, CBS's Bob Schieffer, ABC's Ann Compton, PBS's Gwen Ifill and New York Times reporter David Sanger, among many others. The Vice President's...

He's met with several journalist organizations over the week on a kind of background basis, which has caused a lot of consternation with some. Is he going to have to go? GWEN IFILL: Well you know how, when it's about journalism, how kind of navel-gazy we get. STEPHANOPOULOS: Right, the public doesn't seem to care about this.

    Diane Sawyer: "Moderate Islamists" government in Tunisia - What the heck is that? This ("moderate Islamists") was D. Sawyer's invented language today [Oct. 24, 2011]. (World News With Diane Sawyer - ABC) --- PBS NewsHour - Oct. 24, 2011 Gwen Ifill had guests: Michelle Dunn (Atlantic Journal) and Hisham Melhem, Washington bureau chief for Al-Arabiya TV. Surprisingly, it was Michelle Dunn that typically was caught up in the media romance-with-Arab-spring frenzy and lied/said that defended the 'Sharia' legalization in Tunisia. Whereas the Arab Muslim Hisham of al-Arabiya that was more defining it in clarity, 'Islamic law' being the main Vs...
  • The significance of 1773: Moron leftists mock Palin, embarrass themselves (Gwen Ifill is dumb!)

    Sarah Palin wisely warned Tea Party activists to keep working hard right up until Election Day — and not to “party like it’s 1773″ yet. Intellectually superior leftists from Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas to PBS “moderator”/Obama cheerleader Gwen Ifill took to Twitter to snicker about Palin’s historical illiteracy. But it’s the Palin-bashers who humiliated themselves, “Ummm” yourself, nitwit. Of course they wouldn’t know when the Tea Party occurred. They’re too busy wallowing in teabagging jokes and hate smears.
  • Even Obama fans notice he's a phony in how he writes, talks, and even walks

    How phony is Barack Obama? PBS Washington Week host Gwen Ifill reviewed New Yorker editor David Remnick's new Obama book The Bridge in the Washington Post Outlook section Sunday, and she kept finding Obama is a Slick Barry, a "shape shifter." Obama even admitted to rhetoric what should be obvious -- how he changes "dialects" depending on the audience he's talking to: Obama cops to this. "The fact that I conjugate my verbs and speak in a typical Midwestern newscaster's voice -- there's no doubt that this helps ease communication between myself and white audiences," he tells Remnick. "And there's...

    DC Commencement Circuit Bethany Stotts, April 30, 2009 Happy graduates are about to go off to seek their fortunes in a not-so-friendly job market. But before they can pursue careers in business, writing, science and other fields, they must pass one last indoctrination hurdle: the commencement speech. “If your university is like the majority of schools in the country, it is a bastion of liberalism. It is more than likely that your university has invited a leftist commencement speaker to have the honor of addressing your graduating class,” Bryan Bernys, National Field Director at the Leadership Institute, recently wrote on...

    A careful reading of the questions Gwen Ifill asked during the VP debate reveals several that displayed her bias. The revelation that PBS's Gwen Ifill plans to release a book on Barack Obama on Inauguration Day raised the suspicion that her moderator role at the VP debate might be other than objective. It was. The evidence of her bias is evident in several of her questions to the candidates. Below are a few examples. The Forced-Choice Question The forced-choice question aims to force an answer from a choice of options defined by the interviewer. For example, in the early stages...

    I watched the Fox News version of the debate again, and you could hear the chatter after the debate was over. Palin went over to Gwen first to greet her, and Gwen asks, "Now that wasn't hard was it?" Palin responded, "Not at all." and walked away. Then Biden walked over and Gwen said, "You did a very very good job." The condescension was sickening.

    NRO's The Corner ^ | 10/2/2008 | Peter Kirsanow
    As I noted below, whether Ifill betrays a bias in favor of Obama/Biden tonight is somewhat beside the point. I'll bet that it will be hard to detect any bias in the questions she asks or the manner in which she asks them. And that's precisely why her evident conflict of interest is so insidious. It's more often the questions that aren't asked that betray bias and unfairness. Consider: I'd wager that if a poll had been conducted one year ago asking likely voters whether a candidate who had a working relationship with an unrepentant former terrorist had even the...
